FIND FRET POSITIONS IN THIRTY SECONDS WITHOUT A COMPUTER OR CALCULATIONS THAT DRIVE YOU CRAZY.

"I made a guitar from an old bedpan. Someone suggested calling it a Toilecaster but I prefer a BedPanjo. Do you think this is crappy?"

Thanks John. The box you ask about is a Don Carlos limited edition 2009 made by Arturo Fuente. The boxes on the bench are Padron boxes, and the cbg's on your page look great!

http://www.easy-share.com/1909006080/ After an extended comedy of near misses in Paris, Bob Brozman finally met Djeli Moussa Diawara in the middle of the Indian Ocean, on the isle of Réunion. The versatile American ethnomusicologist-guitarist and Guinean kora master sat in together and immediately decided that a duet album was in order. On Ocean Blues they revel in the textural possibilities of their instruments, as the cascading glissandos and muscular attack of Diawara's modified steel-pegged kora (West African harp) encounters Brozman's exuberantly virtuosic slide and blues guitar. Worlds collide and collude as this two-way fan club creates their brave new music. The pair moves from intuitive cross-cultural politeness to playful theremin-like swoops and whines to ferocious toe-to-toe face-offs. Their singing is another study in contrasts and egoless cooperation--Diawara's filigreed jali wail and Brozman's bluesy growl unexpectedly turn out to be made for each other.

in regards to this "it's a tin available in oz that has mosquito coils in .Only 5 bucks!"
At 3:23pm on April 20, 2010, Scott Waters said…
where do you find that?
At 9:06pm on April 18, 2010, The Phrygian Kid said…
yeah mate, probly best gig i've ever seen considering the seats we had, the sound etc..
thanks so much for the invite..

the recording i got is of very listenable quality..
I like it much more than the cd i bought on the night to be honest..
Still gotta chop it up in an audio editor to add track markers, just two long files at present.
I'll get onto it hopefully before that fretwire turns up off gitty..
i trust u got my message about the prices and are happy etc? a pound should do maybe twenty something necks, so a neck will cost around $2 to fret! :D
have a great day pimp daddy
